I just bought a pair of Martin Logan Theos electrostatic speakers. Oh my, do these dark-cherry beauties sound great--even straight out of the box! They replaced a pair of B&W 804S, which in turn replaced a pair of ML ReQuests due to the latter's overwhelming size according to my wife! Anyway, the Theos are much less obtrusive but still have the incredibly clarity and transparency for which ML is known. The B&Ws sound good, but they can't compete with the utter realism of ML speakers. It's so great to be an ML owner again!
